Point and Click, or Graphic adventure games used to be a pretty major genre in the PC market back in the 90's. LucasArts was the one major company producing such great hits as the Monkey Island and Sam and Max series, Maniac Mansion and Day of the Tentacle. These type of games were focused more on the story development and presented gameplay through various puzzles that had to be solved in order to progress the story forward. One would have to use the most of their imagination to get through these type of games.

In recent years this once PC exclusive genre has had a growth in game releases not only on Steam, but also showing light on current gen consoles. Remasters and sequals to past franchises have returned along with new titles such as Back to the Future, The Walking Dead, and Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People. A remaster of Day of the Tentacle was in the making before LucasArts was closed by Disney therefore shutting that project down never to be seen by the public.

A newer company, Daedalic Entertainment, has been hard at work continuing the graphic adventure game legacy that LucasArts has left behind. While not affiliated with LucasArts, the games that they produce have that same quality that you would find in a LucasArts game. Some of their games including Edna & Harvey, The Whispered World, and Deponia received various awards such as best story, best youth game, and best soundtrack.

While I can understand these games aren't not the most appealing to most gamers, if your into a rich story, beautiful artwork, and challenging puzzles, point and click adventure games are surely something to look into and enjoy. There are a wide variety to choose from and can be found on almost any platform nowadays.
